Hymn/Song Information

The Gospel shows the Father's grace




The Gospel shows
the Fatherís grace,
Who sent his Son to save our race,
Proclaims how Jesus lived and died
That man might thus be justified.


It sets the Lamb before our eyes,
Who made thíatoning sacrifice,
And calls the souls
with guilt oppressed
To come and find eternal rest.


It brings the Saviorís righteousness
Our souls to robe in royal dress;
From all our guilt it brings release
And gives the troubled
conscience peace.


It is the power of God to save
From sin and Satan and the grave;
It works the faith, which firmly clings
To all the treasures which it brings.


It bears to all the tidings glad
And bids their hearts no more be sad;
The heavy laden souls it cheers
And banishes their guilty fears.


May we in faith its tidings learn
Nor thanklessly its blessings spurn;
May we in faith its truth confess
And praise the Lord
our Righteousness!
